Cape Argus - - LIFE -

NO mat­ter the sea­son you will al­ways need a good pair of sun­glasses. Gerry Cupido puts to­gether a sim­ple guide to se­lect a frame to com­ple­ment the shape of your face.

Oval Face: Ri­hanna Pretty much any­thing

Your op­tions are end­less. Pick a shape you like and you’re good to go. Why would you stick to one shape then. Add a va­ri­ety of shapes to your col­lec­tion. Try to pick a frame that isn’t much wider than your face.

Heart-Shaped Face: Kerry Wash­ing­ton Cat-eye and avi­a­tors

Con­trary to the rule of op­po­site for square or round shape faces, you want the frame to copy the shape of your face. Cat-eye and avi­a­tors are wider at the top and slightly ta­pered at the bot­tom, which means they are sim­i­lar to a heart shape.

Square Face: An­gelina Jolie Round frames

In the same way a square frame bal­ances out a round shaped face, a round frame will bal­ance out a square face. Choose frames with round or curved cor­ners.

Round Face: Olivia Munn Way­far­ers or square frames

If you have a round shaped face, it’s best to go for square framed sun­glasses. Any round shaped glasses would be a big no-no. They will only make your face ap­pear even rounder.
